Hey netizens, doing some research, and I'd like to ask you a few questions.

What do you consider to be the biggest threats to online privacy in the world today?

If there were one thing you could have visibility into the practices of, what would it be?

@thegibson I'd break the question into a few parts:

- WHO or WHAT represents a threat? Actors.

- What MECHANISMS does that threat manifest as?

- What ACTIVITIES contribute to this?

- What specific RISKS are prresented?

Possibly a few others, though I'll try to hit on these points.

@thegibson The working definition I've had of "privacy" as a capacity or power doesn't seem widely used, though it's generally conformant with usage:

"The ability to define and enforce limits on the sharing or distribution of information, secrets, or data."

I'm working with that as a foundation, in case anything that follows isn't clear.
